This is the ninth in a series about the concept of Zero Trust, which means in the IT sense that you trust nothing and always verify everything surrounding and connected to your network. Today’s discussion will be on Network Security.
Network Security is having the proper hardware and configuration of that hardware in place to protect the business network. This configuration includes segmenting network traffic to keep specific types of traffic, like guest devices, separate from traffic of business devices. It also includes keeping outsiders out of the network and detecting when they have breached security measures. Here are some questions to ask:
- Do you have a business class router / firewall?
- Do you have business class switches and access points that support segmentation?
- Is your network configured to segment business traffic from guest traffic?
- Are devices like VoIP phones and network cameras on their own network?
- Is geo-location blocking turned on for non-essential countries?
- Is network traffic being analyzed for suspicious activity?
- Do you filter internet traffic?
- Can your network detect and respond to a breach?
